Today we discussed the definitions of Accuracy and Precision, as well as their importance in science. These definitions tie directly to our discussion of significant figures and scientific notation earlier in the week since significant figures are what allow scientists to convey their level of precision.

The slides from today’s presentation on Accuracy and Precision have been uploaded. Again, don’t forget about tomorrow’s quiz that will cover Scientific Notation and Significant Figures. Look to the previous days’ posts for more information on each of those topics.
